Growing Tasmanian Agriculture - Research, Development and Extension for 2050

​​​​The Tasmanian Government is developing a White Paper, "Growing Tasmanian Agriculture – Research, Development and Extension for 2050". The White Paper will guide future Government investment, industry partnerships and set a contemporary framework for achieving the productivity improvements required to growth the value of agriculture tenfold to $10 billion by 2050.

Green Paper

On 5 May 2017, the Government released a Green Paper, which was open for public comment until Friday 2 June 2017. Submissions to the Green Paper will lead to the development of a White Paper - a detailed policy statement that will set out best practice and inform future investments in agricultural RD&E in Tasmania. It is anticipated that the White Paper will be released in September 2017.

Please Note:
This review is investigating only RD&E pertaining to land-based agriculture. Aquaculture, fisheries and forestry RD&E matters are out of scope.  The tertiary educational services of UTAS and the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture as they relate to agriculture are also out of scope.
